Blog For You
You should blog for yourself first. Blogging should be something you enjoy, to express your passions, interests and opinions. Blogging is a great self-improver in my opinion, if you're writing, editing and creating it can only help you grow, it challenges you to write and communicate better.
Practice Makes Perfect
You can go no where but up really, you may not be particularly happy with your content now, (I'm a million miles from where I want to be with my content) but you will get better, keep going!
Be Consistent 
Someone will read your blog eventually! If you keep going, and post regularly. If you can, post on a specific day and time each week, aim for that, that way your readers will know when to expect new content. But do it for the love first, not for attention or freebies.
Be Genuine
Use what you have, do what you can. Be true to yourself and your interests. I think most people can tell straight away when a person's heart isn't in something. Even if everyone else seems to have a ton of cash to buy the latest stuff, and you just don't. (Me) Work with what you have. You will probably come up with more creative ideas.
Get Inspired
If you're stuck for inspiration check out my previous post full of lists of blog post ideas. You could try getting a blogging buddy, that way you could encourage each other to blog. Another idea is to create a schedule of days to post on and work towards having a post ready for that time. Carry a notebook to scribble down ideas, you can be inspired by anything around you for blog posts. Or just make a note in your phone. I like to doodle though I think it helps creativeness flow better :p
Connect
If you're blogging yourself, you probably read blogs too. If you read and enjoy someone else's posts, let them know! That way they know you're there and can take a look at your blog too, if you're enjoying their content, you may well have common interests, so it's a great way to make blog friends. Do not spam anyone though or leave stupid comments that are clearly just so you can leave your blog link. Nobody appreciates that. Again, be genuine, be real.

I hope this post inspired you to keep going with your blog if you've been having doubts.

  2. This is a lovely post!! I've had 2 blogs in the past and found it really difficult to keep a balance - blogging for me/inspiration/getting anxious about not posting enough etc. You've given some really useful advice :) I'm thinking of setting up another blog, so I will definitely keep your post in mind! xox
